I have conceptualised the film on the idea of self-revelation and the destruction of the ego that happens through the practice of yoga. Asana is just one aspect of yoga, but yoga in reality has many aspects to it that leads us on the journey towards being a better human being. The physical aspect, Hatha yoga is just one part of yoga. I have used the symbol of the mandala that represents the female energy that is indicative of the physical universe that we inhabit and then moved on to metaphorically describe how the universe comes into being only when the union of Purusha and Prakriti happen. In the revelation of this realisation, we understand the insignificance of holding on to this idea of ourselves that limits us to this body that we possess. The 5 senses that are constantly awakened by the presence of things in the world around us must come into our control so we are truly free from our own limitations of emotion.
